The impact of social networks on information flow in fire prone communities was the focus of Sondra Dickinson’s PhD research. Sondra, of the University of Melbourne, analysed social networks to better understand how communities respond to bushfires. She explored whether relationships within communities were developed in response to actual or anticipated fire risk, and whether those relationships formed for the purpose of providing support.
